Friday Creature

This is Slithery the corn snake and he lives with this boy. I visited them last week, but Slithery wasn't feeling at his best. You can tell, from his cloudy eyes, that he's getting ready to shed his skin.


But when I went back several days later, (with my new camera -- thanks Fletch! I owe you a cup of coffee!) he was feeling much better.


He was looking like quite the dapper fellow. But he was feeling hungry.


When he saw a mouse, he was quick to pounce.


He then strangled his prey.


And then swallowed it whole. It was quite the impressive performance.


Have a wonderful weekend! More creatures of all shapes and sizes are waiting over at the modulator's ark!

Great pictures Alice! You put the whole thing together really well! Later today I will post another blog with some of our pictures of Slithery.

I just happen to be sitting in the Stone Cup sipping some joe as I read your post. I just knew something was different about those later pics. I'll be in town tomorrow. If you wanna take some some big bad ass white L lenses for a spin lemme know.
